No SASL authentication mechanisms using Ubuntu 20.04 + ISPConfig 3 + Dovecot
 
Hi,

I followed step by step the guide "The Perfect Server - Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Apache2, BIND, Dovecot, ISPConfig 3)" to setup a new server. I works fine but I have problems with email.

The Monitor says:

Web-Server: Online
FTP-Server: Online
SMTP-Server: Online
POP3-Server: Offline
IMAP-Server: Offline
DNS-Server: Online
mySQL-Server: Online

The Mail log says a lot of times:

Feb 15 08:20:11 ubuntu postfix/smtpd[4576]: fatal: no SASL authentication mechanisms

Searched for other posts in the forum and I have no solution yet. Anyone can help me?

Thanks

Please start dovecot.

Read that somewhere in another post. Did it and the same mistake. There has to be a mistake in the guide.

There is no mistake in the guide, I've installed a VM for a client today by using this guide and did a strict copy & paste of all commands and my setup works.

Which error do you get in /var/log/mail.log when yu restart dovecot.

root@ubuntu:/var/log# service dovecot start
dovecot start/running, process 2586

The last entries of mail.log:

Deleted the mail.log file and rebooted the system. Here you have the new mail.log file. The system tries to send a mail message when the cron jobs finish:
